Why Is Kurt Angle Replacing Roman Reigns in WWE TLC Sunday?

We've been reporting on the insane medical issues taking over WWE, and now it looks like two major stars have been removed from Sunday's WWE TLC event because of it. It does serve as a minor setback to the Shield reunion angle, but Kurt Angle's official in-ring return is just as big - if not bigger - news. Reigns will be replaced by. In his place will be WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle who will be making his return to a WWE ring for the first time since 2006.

Bo Dallas, the real-life brother of Wyatt who has been mysteriously off of WWE television for two weeks, is reportedly the third performer in question.

The dossier, first released publicly by Buzzfeed, was filled with unfounded smears about Trump that lacked evidence or proof. Democrats continued to pay for it once it was clear he would be the Republican nominee.

The WWE also confirmed that a blockbuster match=up between AJ Styles and Finn Balor has been added to the card. WWE announced that Kurt Angle will team with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose to face Kane, Braun Strowman, The Miz, Sheamus, and Cesaro in the TLC main event. Balor will now battle A.J. Styles.

The exact medical issues that knocked Reigns and Wyatt out of action are unclear, but the Pittsburgh Tribune's Justin LaBar reported earlier this week that Wyatt was suffering from viral meningitis. His last-minute return is in many ways a double-edged sword for fans in that it provides increased intrigue this weekend but doesn't have the expected build and fanfare WWE would've preferred for such a momentous occasion.
